Herds for Growth

Wild Conservancy Program

Herds for Growth is a project that works to create the best cattle management across all conservancies that neighbour the Maasai Mara.

The model allows landowners sufficient income to carry on their Maasai culture and livelihood whilst supporting the co-existence of livestock and wildlife within this unique eco-system.
